Reigning champions St Andrew’s and Wesley College will meet in the tie of the round following the draw for the senior schoolgirl’s cup made this week. The pair played out a thrilling 4-3 fixture a fortnight ago with the Booterstown school, inspired by Niamh Atcheler eventually taking the spoils.
Andrew’s all but secured their place in the league semi-finals last Saturday with a goal in each half to beat Muckross 2-0, Harriet Kinsman and Gill Pinder on target.
The Marlborough road nursery, though, did challenge throughout and drew a series of saves from Tiffany Ellis. Her clean-sheet meant it was seven wins from seven to date for Andrew’s.
Their tie with Wesley will be one of four all-Premier League ties in the round of 32. High School and Alexandra College meet at Danum for the second time this season in a Dublin 6 derby while Rathdown face Loreto, Bray and King’s Hospital host Muckross.
Premier League Pool B leaders Mount Anville face the short trip to face St Raphaela’s and will hope to continue their pre-Christmas form which garnered two wins in the past fortnight.
Aisling Naughton was on target three times in two games in the victories over Holy Child, Killiney (4-0) and High School (3-0). Anna O’Connell was also on the mark in both games.
All first round cup games are to be completed by January 16.
